Elizaeth is the daughter of William Stringfellow . See his will in Barnwell county SC circa 1810. This William is thought by me and many others to be the son of William of King George County VA. He seems to be the one who was in court records as apprenticing two of his brothers after his fathers death....1748.The brothers are well documented as they were all apprenticed. James is one of the brothers. The others are Robert, Henry, Enoch l, Rueben, and John.This William jr married a Mary, bought and sold land. He was not heard of again in KG County, but a William appeared in Franklin County NC along with neighbors and inlaws of the same names as in KG County. He is with a Mary. A William then appeared in Richmond County NC, with many of the same people who were in Franklin County. There is no Mary mentioned, but the wife is Rebecka. None of the children had been named Rebecka...but there are daughter and grand daughters named Mary. Rebecka seems to be a second wife. I have information on all these families.
The first William had been married to a Sarah, who married David Seal after her husbands death. Some people say she was an Elkins, probably because a Richard Elkin and a John Elkin were connected in court proceedings with her, and she may have been. In researching the Elkins, I have found no proof of this. I also have never seen her referred to as Sarah Dorothy except in researchers notes. I have found no document which says this, nor any bible record. If there is one, I would love to see it. I have been researching this family since 1972, when you had to visit the National Archives, and go onsite to court houses to view actual records, so I have a lot of information.
